Washington State University studied the chemistry of technetium-99 a byproduct of plutonium weapons production which is considered a major challenge for environmental cleanup Watch all our videos from

Department of Energy is in the process of building a waste treatment plant at Hanford to immobilise hazardous nuclear waste in glassHowever researchers have been stymied because not all the technetium-99 is incorporated into the glass and volatilised gas must be recycled back into the melter system The element can be very soluble in water and moves easily through the environment when in certain forms so it is considered a significant environmental hazardSince technetium compounds are challenging to work with earlier research has used less volatile substitutes to try to understand the material’s behaviour Some of the compounds themselves have not been studied for 50 years said John McCloy associate professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials EngineeringThe researchers conducted fundamental chemistry tests to better understand technetium-99 and its unique challenges for storage Also Read: Scientists figure out way to convert nuclear waste to clean electricity They determined that the sodium forms of the element behave much differently than other alkalis which possibly is related to its volatility and to why it may be so reactive with water “The structure and
